If lender listed car as a repossession within last 24 hours is it too late to avoid having it on credit report if it has not been picked up yet?

First of all, a lender does not report a vehicle as a repossession until they actually have possession of the vehicle. Then immediately via computer the code is entered and authorities notified. The credit reporting company may be a little slow getting the repo on your report however, but any new lender is going to check your report before giving you a new loan. After a vehicle is repo'd you usually have a few days prior to sale of that vehicle, to get the vehicle back if you pay the account current plus any repo expenses if it was a voluntary repo. If it was not voluntary, and the lender had to take the vehicle, they probably will not redeem the vehicle back to you, but it never hurts to ask.

AnswerIf the primary on the contract does not pay then the lienholder comes after the co-signer for the payment. The credit of both the primary and co-signer are going to show repossession. If the lender has kept the title in its files as part of the loan process and is listed as a primary lienholder, it can sell the vehicle after the repossession.

7 years if there is no "new action" on the particular account. "New action" means if you were to start paying on it or if the financier were to get a Court judgment on the loan. By the way.......A voluntary repossession (turning in the car before it go to collections) is the SAME as a regular repo. It will be listed on your credit in the same manner unless tou have negotiated a new termination clause wiyh the lender.

The way it is reported is the decision of the credit reporting bureau. It might be listed in different ways on individual reports. Generally it will remain on the report as a " settlement",not as a "satisfied in full."

If the lender has no legal claim against you, that is if you were not a guarantor on a loan (maker or comaker), then the listing on your credit report is in error. You must request its removal in writing to the lender who has listed it and to the credit reporting agency who has it listed. They will have thirty days to either substantiate the debt and its listing, or have it removed.
